New Technology Blog

I have always had a great interest in electronics and technical things. Over the past few years I worked on a number of projects which I would really like to share on my blog. My main blog has turned out to be more of a photography blog, so I decided that it would be best to start a separate blog dedicated solely to my electronics projects.

I hope to post a few tutorials and other cool content over the next few weeks, so I would really appreciate if you go and check it out. If you like what you see, then you could always consider subscribing! (I will still be posting my pictures on this blog :) )

In the Warmth

I have never seen any wild lizards in Ireland. In Switzerland, on the other hand, you only have to look under a rock when it is sunny to find one (or twenty!). I took these pictures while hiking in Oberdorf, Basel-land, Switzerland.

The Sparrow

Birds are often very hard to photograph, especially without a zoom-lens. Yet all the same, I managed to take this nice picture of a (female?) house sparrow using my wide-angle lens! The thing is that these birds get fed very regularly with bread crumbs and nuts, and therefore they come up very close looking for food.

In a Hotel

A couple of weeks back, just after I finished my Leaving Cert, I went on a trip to London with the Kilkenny Youth Orchestra. Although we were technically in ‘London’, we stayed in the cheapest hotel which could be found. This hotel was a Travel Lodge situated in Uxbridge, which is the very last stop on the outer edges of the London tube network! It took at least 3/4 of an hour each morning to get into the city.

The picture below is one which I took from inside my hotel room in Uxbridge. I find the way that the light shines in rather intriguing!
